. new star has had to get a little bit creative because in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, they and others like them have had to do the best they can to accommodate their customers after damage and marine terminals that in many cases cannot be used. about a mile down the road nustar's facility has been damaged by the flood, battered by tidal surges, filled with debris and they're still working on that. other terminals in this area are in similar spots. as of today, at least a half-a-dozen of them are fully or even partly running. including facilities run by bp, hess, and phillip's 66. these locations provide a crucial link between refineries who make the products and the airports and gas stations that distribute them. but as these get rehabilitated, electricity outages in this area remain a major problem. some of the operators have told me they're a little bit baffled by the fact that they are resupplying on a steady basis, yet there are still huge fuel lines snaking but the region. the only thing they can think of is there is not enough power at gas stations to get that f

to hurricane sandy, that is not actually how it worked out. nobody knows exactly how this particular october surprise hurricane is going to affect the technical act of voting. we have had some early voting suspensions and voter registration deadlines and absentee ballot deadlines change in a lot of states directly affected so there may be a technical direct effect of the storm, but more broadly, and especially in terms of these key swing states, this storm is a major unexpected external variable that, frankly, rivals the election in terms of the country's attention. it turns out this october surprise does have political salience. at least in this sense. the most eagerly awaited endorsement in this presidential race happened just before the storm. right? that was colin powell. president obama today actually released an ad highlighting the colin powell endorsement. >> will you endorse president obama? >> yes. when he took over, we were in one of the worst recessions we had seen in recent times. close to a depression. and i saw over the next several years stabilization come back in the financia

quickly right now in new york and new jersey. in the aftermath of hurricane sandy drivers that can actually find an open gas station have to deal with lines that stretch for miles and miles and sometimes, when they finally get to that gas station, they run out of gas. so you've got folks sitting in those lines and you've got gas in the storage tanks and in the pipelines and in the tankers across the northeast but in many cases the company can not, for power reasons, get that gasoline distributed to the places where it needs to go. 60% of the gas stations in new jersey are closed. i also heard numbers as high as 80%. 70% of the stations in long island are closed. think about that. that's a huge percentage of the gas stations in both of these highly populated states that are not even open for business. so it is a really, really tough situation out there. for those lucky enough to get to the pump, actually paying for their gas is another concern. >> i just spent $30,000 getting my home repaired and it is all gone. >> we have nothing. no credit cards. nothing in our bank accounts. $15

, especially in key battlegrounds. >> let me bring you in. we talked about a bump after hurricane sandy, the image of president obama with governor christie. according to our first read team, they say if there's a bump it's a bump in obama's direction. the caveat for team obama, al gore in 2000 and gerald ford in '76 had the momentum and ended up losing. both were representing incumbent party. what do you make if any of any comparisons there? >> i think what people liked to see last week in the midst of hurricane sandy was the most port zan of republicans, the man who delivered the keynote address at the convention working with the incumbent president, who is the democratic standard bearer. that's what people most want. when i had the opportunity to sit down the president recently, the first question i asked was about polarization. what are you prepared to do to get things done and to compromise, regardless of where the blame lies, for that which has taken place up until now? that's why i think it struck a chord. >> let's talk about the things we're seeing and getting a lot of people on

. let's talk about the president talking about sandy and laying out his big domestic accomplishment. >> also talking about. when the president talks about an america for everybody, that's a vision that a lot of different parts of this country can see themselves in. women, veterans, african-american, immigrant, latino, asian. that's part of the strength of his message. the thing that's been so beautiful to me is as tragic as sandy was, it's meant the president has come back to an essential thing. not just his campaign, not just of his presidency but of his life's work which is we're in this together. how do we make sure -- i read something he was saying. everybody has to have a fair shot. the point being, we're able o come back to that mess a.m. i think that's so important. i also think it is part of what -- if you're one of those vote who are have not made up your mind and you're hearing that, you've got to be thinking, you mow what, yeah, that's what i want. i want that optimistic pfuture where everybody has a chance. he's not evil. >> there's something about sort of how the disast

this on sandy or a divisive primary. you can blame this on the following. you have a republican party that no longer reflect what is america looks like. you have a republican party that was rightly or wrongly, perceived to be disenfranchising latinos and women -- [overlapping dialogue] >> the popular vote, it is evenly divided. >> look at the gender -- >> dirty divisive -- [overlapping dialogue] >> excuse me. the election is over. look at the returns. obama won the latino voters -- >> it doesn't matter how we -- >> let me finish my point. >> julie, finish your point. >> as i said, rightly or wrongly, you have a republican party perceived by latinos as wanted being on there side, women, want on their side. if the republican party doesn't understand they have to expand their brand and they are no longer representing white men, they will continue to lose. the more they fight that fact, the longer you will have results like this. >> promoting riskal responsibility only represents the white male brand. >> the race is over. we are discussing demographics. >> unwaivering supporter from barac

to the test. >> let them vote! >> the other big wild card, sandy. a week after the storm recovery efforts are still winding slowly through the hardest hit. new jersey governor chris christie who praised president obama's response to sandy repeated his support for mitt romney. sort of. >> on tuesday i'm voting for mitt romney because i think he's the best guy for the job. it doesn't mean that i can't turn to the president of the united states of america and say to him, thank you, sir, for providing good leadership in this crisis. >> and whom do you trust? the grid iron predicts. a redskin hometown defeat favors the challenger but the lsu/alabama matchup offers good news for the incumbent. >> and good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in democracy plaza in new york city. joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor, and managing editor of post politics.com and mark halperin political analyst for "time" and msnbc. so, first to you, chris, let's talk about the state of the race. >> well, we're almost there, andrea. i think the state of the race is that president obama retains a

(together) social on this side, financial. which party is currently predicted to win a majority in the senate? the republicans? would you make a bet on that? no. are you chicken? >>> to me this election's fairly simple. who's more likely to restore the middle class, to give poor people a chance to work their way into it, to build a 21st century american economy with the good jobs of tomorrow? i think it's the candidate that got off the campaign trail and went to work on hurricane sa
this opportunity with sandy to get out there and look extremely presidential, to be bipartisan, to kind of wear the mantel of commander in chief in the midst of this national tragedy and they think that that is to their benefit and, of course, people see that and they are playing on that sort of thing, too. he has the advantage of office and it's not to be sneezed at at this stage of the game. >> thank you both for your time tonight. >> thanks, reverend. >> thanks, rev. >>> tonight, a developing investigation into mitt romney's plan to train an army of poll watchers to intimidate and mislead you at the polls. it's a big, important story and we have exclusive new video the romney campaign has been trying to stop you from seeing. >>> also, the gop's freak kout over chris christie. they just can't deal with this praise for the president. and now it's sinking to a new low. >>> and george w. bush has a big october surprise for mitt romney. and he's definitely not going to like it. >>> all of this, plus the great gloria steinem right here on "politicsnation," msnbc. jack, you're a little boring. bori
